When considering the amount of parking needed for Phase II, studies were performed to analyze parking needs throughout the downtown. When the project was downsized based on citizen input, the originally planned parking deck will not be needed, so it was eliminated from the plan. All parking will be available through surface lots or on-street parking. Individual housing units will have their own attached parking garages.
A parking study was performed to determine parking needs of the Phase II project, as well as current parking conditions on North Main Street and First and Main. Innovation will play a key role in the future of parking downtown as the City studies parking management systems that allow for real-time monitoring of available spaces and expanded technology tools for visitors.
The City selected Walker Parking Consultants to perform the downtown Parking Study to evaluate existing and proposed parking needs and make recommendations for the future parking within the Hudson Central Downtown Business District.
